I have had brast cancer that is ER/PR positive. My oncologist has told me that the jury is still out on the soy story. Moderation is a key, again. It has not been proven to raise the incidence of breast cancer. Please show me where you're getting your facts.My onc. has said that using a soy protein powder is not the best thing..soy protein isolate is concentrated. That's what he suggest we stay away from. But studies are mixed. Yes, soy contains phytoestrogens, but it's not been proven that it absolutley causes breast cancer. There have been studies that say eating a lot of french fries when a child can contribute to breast cancer, too. Never had ff's when I was a kid. Cancer happens, even to those who take the best care of themselves. Please stop scaring people.

please note that soy is not appropriate for men or for women who have had various types of cancers. soy mimics estrogen and that is shown to raise the incidence of breast and female cancers in women that are either susceptible to them or have had them. it is also not appropriate for pre-pubescent children. girls are already reaching puberty too early, and this creates problems in an immature mind that is dealing with sexual hormones too advanced for the child to handle.

other than that, the recipe seems fine. i'd eat it but then i'm not a 5 to 16 year old girl or a male.

btw, soy as a fermented product as in soy sauce and kim chi is fine.

Thanks for the suggestions for a snack. I have been looking for something that diabetics can eat, to take to homes this holiday season— will tell no one else, but just munch away too! PR
